Let's Get Ron Sims Drunk and Make a Historical Documentary

With the 100th anniversary of its first World's Fair fast approaching, Seattle's amateur historians are doubtless gearing up to tell tales of the city's forgotten past. We think they could take a lesson from a little YouTube series called "Drunk HIstory".

The concept pairs besotted amateur historians, who narrate the action, with noted thespians like Jack Black and Michael Cera, who act it out. Peep this rendition of Ben Franklin's (Jack Black) discovery of electricity:

A similar execution could involve notable Seattleites like Norm Rice, Tom Carr, and Jean Godden, drunk off their asses, telling frequently apocryphal stories of early 20th-century Seattle, with John Keister, Nancy Guppy, Tom Skerritt, and Sir Mix-a-Lot as the historical protagonists.

For example, imagine a smashed Ron Sims telling the story of the lumberman fraternity's aptly named Hoo-Hoo House, with Ross Shafer and Duff McKagan acting out the hard-partying within.

Let's do this, Seattle.
